§ 45. Mr. BOTTOMLEY
asked the Prime Minister whether he has received a protest from the Admiralty against the appointment of the right hon. Member for Blackburn to the Imperial Communications Board; if so, what action, if any, he has taken in the matter; whether he is aware that dissatisfaction on the same subject exists in both the Army and the Air Department; and whether, in the interest of the wireless service of the Empire, he will take steps to remedy the present unsatisfactory condition of affairs?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The answer to the first and third parts of the question is in the negative. The appointment was made because it was thought to be in the interest of the wireless service.
